I enjoyed reading Amazing and Death Defying Diary of Eugene Dingman. Journaling by means of a diary is a healthy way to communicate and reflect. In 1964, he wrote The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds, his first and most successful play. The play ran off-Broadway in 1970, and on Broadway in 1971.

Paul Zindel, Sr. ran away with his mistress when Zindel was two, leaving the trio to. .The Amazing and Death-Defying Diary of Eugene Dingman, New York: Harper, 1987. ran away with his mistress when Zindel was two, leaving the trio to move around Staten Island, living in various houses and apartments. Zindel wrote his first play in high school. Despite the often dark subject matter of his books, which deal with loneliness, loss, and the effects of abuse, they are also filled with humor. Many of his novels have zany titles, such as My Darling, My Hamburger, Pardon Me, You're Stepping on My Eyeball! or Confessions of a Teenage Baboon. A Begonia for Miss Applebaum, New York: Harper, 1989.

As a major Paul Zindel fan (I'm currently working on reading every book and play he has ever written) I can say that this does not stand up. Immediatley after the first read, it's a great book, but in comparison with Zindel's other fare it's just not as good. It's funny, but Eugene is awfully slow as a character. Mahatma, his Indian friend, is a terrific character who would stand up much better in another book. If you won't to read a good book then you need to read Amazing and Death Defying Diary of Eugene Dingman. This isn't an ordinary love story.

Coming down from the literary high of I Never Loved Your Mind, I plunged into this book with reckless abandon. I was soon disillisioned, however. As a major Paul Zindel fan (I'm currently working on reading every book and play he has ever written) I can say that this does not stand up. Immediatley after the first read, it's a great book, but in comparison with Zindel's other fare it's just not as good. It's funny, but Eugene is awfully slow as a character. Mahatma, his Indian friend, is a terrific character who would stand up much better in another book. Regardless, although this is a must for hardcore Zindel fans, someone just starting out should really leave this until after I Never Loved Your Mind, To Take A Dare and The Pigman .

A rather skeptical reader myself, I was reluctant to pick up Eugene's diary. I thought it would contain another outrageous narrator who you can't understand or comprehend. I absolutly hate authors that create narrators who are nothing like teens today. How wrong I was about Eugene! Eugene's Diary is full or honesty and integrity. His diary tells the tale or his original, yet suprisingly normal summer, in which Eugene falls hopelessly in love, craves the attentions of his absent father, learns to tolerate his oblivious mother, befriends an Indian worker, and in turn, learns the difficulty in loving himself. Eugene's sincerity and his promise 'not to lie to his diary despite how terrible things turn out' wins the reader's admiration. More than once I found myself grinning with happinnes and sighing with embarrasment as Eugene went through another 'amazing and death defying' moment. In the end, I think you'll find that Eugene has found love for the right person after all, himself!
